35 & 36 Weeks

I can't thank you all enough for all of the advice & encouraging comments about little G being breech. It has given us lots to think about & I really appreciate all of the personal experiences that you all shared. I love all of your suggestions & it is so great to hear about successful c-section experiences with great recoveries!

I went to my chiropractor on Friday who practices the Webster Technique & followed along with the recommended tips on the Spinning Babies site over the weekend. This included my husband sitting on the bottom step, with my head in his lap and my inverted body up the next five steps with the cat staring at us like we were bat shit crazy. Needless to say, she has not budged!

After much research, we have decided against the version procedure. While many people have had painless, successful procedures, we just don't feel 100% comfortable with the potential risks associated with it. So, I will see my chiro this week again & continue to do what I can at home. Then we will have another ultrasound Thursday to see if she has turned & go from there.
Until then..........
